    The biggest sign of drug abuse with teens is the same behavior in the parents. If the parents have done it or are doing it, the teen is almost certain to do it.

  • sunflare63 says:

    the signs would be—they cannot motivate themselves or is that the hormone thing.
    Anyway….here is a site…http://www.drugabuse.com

  • Critter Lady says:

    Lethargy (tired all the time, not having any motivation) is probably the NUMBER ONE SIGN.

    Being argumentative, drop in grades at school, and a host of other not so subtle problems seem to develop. The below site might help.

    no but i can tell you from personal experience. i generally spent most of my time away from home, and when i was at home, i avoided my dad. try searching the bedroom. one of my favorite places to hide stuff in was a book that i cut the middle of the pages out of. you have to look EVERYWHERE. you could also do a drug test, but that has a way of causing a lot of mistrust towards you.

    red eyes also the behavor his is withdrown, the grads are down. he is all way angery. try teen drugs.com. or drug abuse.com or .org.

  • KivrinAngel says:

    Any of those symptoms could also be a sign of mental illness, including depression or anxiety. With? such broad symptoms listed, this information could be very dangerous. It could convince someone that their loved one is using drugs and lead to a confrontation that only deepens the actual issue. Instead of recommending an intervention, you should recommend an honest, non-judgmental conversation.
